I am Ruth: A Story of Loss, Love, & Legacy {Book Review}


When I heard The Mom’s of Master Books would be getting “I am Ruth” this month I was so excited! Ruth is one of my all time favorite books. At 12 my girls discipleship studied the book of Ruth for the winter and spring.  Shortly before we started Ruth my best friend was killed because of this I was able to identify when Ruth and Naomi faced life after loss.  I was REALLY able to identify with the rediscovering of their faith. IMG_0983 I had to learn to trust God just like Ruth. In the years since then there has been all kinds of pain and heartache in my life, but Ruth is always there giving me encouragement to go on because God has a plan. The road getting there is sometime extremely painful but God is always faithful to provide for his sons and daughters.

One of the most beloved and enduring accounts of the Bible, Ruth’s story is one of tragedy. Here is the true account of a young widow who chooses to leave the land of her birth for the unknown lands of her mother-in-law, Naomi, who is returning home bitter and angry at God for the loss of her husband and two sons.

More than just a simple love story, I Am Ruth is about courageously facing life after loss, rediscovering faith, and fearlessly placing yourself and your future in God’s loving hands. This text brings to light the full humanity found in the biblical account, and makes it personal for every reader who has suffered in life’s shadows longing to see God’s plan.
